Monthly Recipe: Pizza Pie
I saw this recipe from PaleOMG last week, and decided to give it a try because it mentions pizza, and Julie swore that it’s one of her most favorite and popular recipes of all time.
It’s been a hit with the kids and Mike and it was pretty simple to make! The leftovers even fry up nicely in the pan creating a yummy crisp on the bottom!
So here’s the recipe from one of our favorite people, PaleOMG:
- 1 large spaghetti squash (about 600 grams)
- 1 pound italian sausage
- 1/2 yellow onion, diced
- 1 cup pizza sauce (no sugar added)
- 1 teaspoon dried basil
- salt and pepper, to taste
- 3 eggs, whisked
- (optional: add anything you like with pizza: veggies, basil, even cheese if you do primal)
Step 1: Fire Up the Oven
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Step 2: Cook Spaghetti Squash
Cut spaghetti squash in half lengthwise. Place spaghetti squash cut side down on a baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the skin of the squash gives when you press on it. Then reduce oven heat to 350 degrees.
Once squash is done cooking, remove threads and place in an at least an 8×8 greased baking dish. We had to use a 9×9 pan.
Step 3: Cook your Fillings
Place a large pan over medium heat. Add italian sausage and onion. Cook until pink no longer remains in the sausage and it is broken up into pieces.
Add pizza sauce, dried basil and salt and pepper to the pan and mix well.
Step 4: Put It All Together
Add sausage mixture to the 8×8 dish and mix well with spaghetti squash threads.
Lastly, add whisked eggs to the baking dish and mix everything together until you can no longer see the eggs.
Step 5: Bake
Place in oven and bake for 1 hour or until the top of the mixture forms a slight crust that doesn’t give when you press on it in the middle of the dish.
Let rest for 5 minutes before serving.
